The 2017 Kia Sedona has earned the honor of Top Safety Pick+ by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, which is the highest award from the institution. This award is especially exciting because the Sedona has actually improved its score with the IIHS since 2015. We know safety ranks among the top matters when choosing a minivan. Want to know why the Sedona ranks among the top of its competition? Come in to Jeffrey Kia for a test drive as soon as today!

Top Safety Pick+

The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety’s Top Safety Pick+ testing procedure takes vehicles through six different crashworthy tests. Vehicles are evaluated in a variety of categories: small overlap front, a moderate overlap front, roof strength and head restraints, side impact, and front crash prevention. The vehicle must earn a “Good” rating in all the tests except for front crash prevention—that test requires an “Advanced” rating.

Safety Features

The Kia Sedona is loaded with excellent safety features. The Sedona earned a “Superior” rating from its Autonomous Emergency Braking system, which automatically deploys the vehicle brake in select conditions. Blind Spot Detection with Rear Cross Traffic Alert is also available for the Sedona. These features check your blind spots for any activity, while also sensing any moving traffic behind the vehicle. A Lane Departure Warning System ensures that you stay safely in the assigned lane. Optional Dynamic Bending Lights feature High-Intensity Discharge lights to increase your vision at night.

In the optional Premium Package, you will have Front and Rear Park Assist to give you parking advice. Parallel parking doesn’t have to be a chore anymore. The included rearview camera also helps with parallel parking and any situations where you may need to park or reverse. A smart key also comes with this trim to help you get into the car with just a push of a button. Although it’s not a safety feature, the Premium Package comes with leather seating for a beautiful finish to the cabin.
